Improve Your Audition

This workshop walked actors through the audition process, featuring a panel of experienced directors ready to share some tips, advice, stories of successes and failures, and dos and don'ts.

As a director, Mike has run the gamut from comedy to tragedy, from classical to contemporary. He has learned as much from his own experiences as he has from the many wonderful and talented directors he's worked with in the past.
